Choosing your wedding style

Spencer Special Events - Wednesday, July 10, 2013

At Spencer Special Events we get to know our bride and grooms’ both separately and as a couple. Each person is unique, each couple is unique, each event should be unique, and so Amanda spends a lot of time getting to know a couple while planning their wedding. Getting to know the couple helps choose the style of a wedding and make it uniquely theirs!

We are having an absolute ball getting to know Christin and Rob and planning their upcoming wedding this fall. They couldn't be more sweet and so much fun to work with. Did we mention they are absolutely gorgeous?

Usually the first order of business is a conference call, typically lasting about an hour and a half, to get better acquainted and talk about the vision of the wedding weekend. Amanda requests that the couple does some minor homework (remember this is fun!) by sending her two to three images that really speak to the couple. Images should be representative of the day and style they wish to have at their wedding. She prefers to walk through this process over the phone versus emailing her a completed questionnaire to really get to know them and their tastes.

To get some inspiration, Amanda suggests brides visit Pinterest, Style Me Pretty, Once Wed, JuneBug Weddings, and Inside Weddings as starting off points. Perusing other weddings will give you a good idea of the style you want your wedding to be. But we also like to get a feel for how you decorate your home, cuisine you fancy, and sense of fashion to help guide us in your design.

There’s a style for everyone. Be it vintage, outdoor, rustic, beach, vineyard, ballroom, classic or modern, styles range tremendously and it’s important your wedding planner can execute your vision based on that style. So what’s your wedding style? 

Is it posh?

Is your style an elegant ballroom setting like this?

Or maybe you are island inspired like this:

Or perhaps a more sweet, southern style like this:

Or are you more of a bright floral burst like this:

Or maybe you have rustic low country charm in mind:

We've had the pleasure of planning all of these events with various styles! Aren't we lucky?

So start your planning with a little bit of homework--it's a tough gig, we know!  Visit some sites and get a sense for the styles that you gravitate towards. When you have a feel for what you like and what you don’t like, Amanda and her team will help you personalize that style and really make it yours. After all, everyone wants a wedding they can call their own, so choosing a style and finding some inspiration that speaks to you is just the beginning. Having a wedding planner who can make it yours and execute the details is what is going to make it YOUR day.

Be sure to follow Amanda & Spencer Special Events on Pinterest to get some great wedding style ideas. We’ll talk about choosing the right venue on our next post!
